Macushield – Now available

Macushield – a meso-zeaxanthin, zeaxanthin and lutein food supplement, derived from marigolds

Scientists have long known that the yellow colour, or pigment, at the macula  comes from the carotenoids, lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin.

These plant compounds which are antioxidants neutralisefree radicals originating from smoking, pollution, fried foods and most importantly blue light and oxidative stress. Furthermore, they help protect the eye by absorbing damaging blue light, which is present in sunlight, car headlights and television screens, amongst other sources.

As blue light is part of normal vision, and oxygen use is required for life, free radical damage is the cost of living, and is therefore unavoidable.

MacuShield® is a unique patented formula which brings
together all three macular carotenoids, in a once a day
easy to take capsule

Meso-zeaxanthin is located at the centre of the macula where vision is sharpest. Research has shown thatmeso-zeaxanthin is generated at the retina  from lutein, however scientists believe that some individuals are unable to perform this conversion.
